Alice in Wonderland Inspired Series Comes to Disney Jr.
Guess what White Rabbit and Mad Hatter fans! A new “Alice in Wonderland” inspired series is coming to Disney Junior.
The series, titled “Alice’s Wonderland Bakery,” is kind of a sequel to the 1951 film. It focuses on Alice’s great-granddaughter, and we will see some well-acquainted characters along the way!
First, Doorknob returns, and he is played by Craig Ferguson. In addition, Donald Faison portrays Harry the March Hare, and Libby Rue stars as Alice.
Donald Faison says Harry the March Hare “has an eye for style, and he isn’t afraid to throw his flair into everything. It’s really awesome to be a part of something that I grew up on. To reintroduce ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to my kids is special.”
Libby Rue says, “Baking is something that Alice does to get close to her great grandmother. It’s basically her superpower.”
Old and New Friends
Little Alice cooks up “whimsical cakes and treats” at the Wonderland Bakery. Exactly who is she baking for? Well, the Cheshire Cat (played by Max Mittleman) and the Queen of Hearts (Eden Espinosa), of course!
Also, Abigail Estrella plays the Princess of Hearts, CJ Uy is Hattie, and Jack Stanton voices Fergie the White Rabbit. Rounding out the lead cast is Secunda Wood as Cookie the cookbook and Audrey Wasilewski as Dinah the cat.
Additional support cast roles include Jon Secada as the King of Hearts along with Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan as Tweedle Do and Tweedle Don’t. Also, Rich Sommer plays Captain Dodo, Yvette Nicole Brown is Mama Rabbit, and Ana Gasteyer plays Kiki. Finally, Lamorne Morris voices Dandy, Matthew Moy is David of Spades, and Lesley Nicol portrays Iris.
Jon Secada says, “The King of Hearts is very old school, wise, patient. The only time that he gets bubbly and joyous is when he dances. The moments of joyfulness, dancing, takes the story to another level.”
Additionally, musical voices are a vast array of Broadway performers including Ali Stroker as Daisy and Melissa van der Schyff as Jojo. Also, James Monroe Iglehart sings for Oliver, Mandy Gonzalez as Mother Rose, Christopher Fitzgerald as Thistle, and George Salazar as Dad Hatter.
